What can you do on a cold, snowy, icy winter day? Drink hot chocolate of course! My obsession with recipe tinkering continues with this one. This hot chocolate recipe is what I make when I’m craving a cup of frothy, liquid, thick as a hot milkshake, chocolate. (It also easily doubles to share with a friend or sweetie… if you’re nicer than me.) It’s got all the right stuff: low notes, high notes and everything in between. Oh, and it goes down oh so easily… you might need some time to yourself.
I reveled in some inspiration from these two recipes, and then adapted it from there…
My version starts with this:
- Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.
- Stir (or whisk) frequently over medium heat, careful not to scorch the chocolate.
- Add vanilla extract, strain out coffee beans & cinnamon stick, and serve hot.
